GC136 Glorious Greens

Gingersnaps Creations 136 is Glorious Greens. I have been having fun again getting inky and in a good old mess. I started with a  piece of white A4 card, which I then blended with a mixture of TH distress inks, including a small area I only coloured with Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters, both shades of green.  I sprayed water all over the full card and sprinkled salt over all of the card. I allowed it to dry, then became impatient and resorted to the heat gun. When dry brushed off all of the salt. I used Memento Cottage Ivy to stamp the Elusive images collage stamp. I re-stamped the butterfly, spritzed it with some Cosmic Shimmer green mica. Added some Diamante glitter and a few crystal gems.  I attached the second butterfly onto the original with some silicone type glue. I also added some glitter to part of the harlequin area to give more light. The completed topper was added to a card with a resist technique leaf background on Crushed Olive. I would not normally make a card with just the one colour but I am pleased with this result. I do hope you like it too. Thanks for visiting and of course for any comments you may leave, for which I am very thankful.
I am also entering this into the January challenge at Sir Stampalot for Monochromatic
